Later this year, we expect Xiaomi to unveil its latest flagship digital series, Xiaomi Mi 12. According to reports, the Mi 12 series may arrive earlier than its predecessor. Recall that the Xiaomi Mi 11 officially launched in December 2020. This means that the Xiaomi Mi 12 may arrive in November. The latest report from popular Weibo leakster, @DCS claims that the Xiaomi Mi 12 series will adopt a new packaging process. This will bring a narrower frame, chin as well as an overall higher visual effect. The narrower frame and chin mean that this smartphone will have a higher screen-to-body ratio.
In addition, the Xiaomi Mi 12 series will use a hyperboloid solution that is more visually coordinated. Furthermore, there are reports that the R-angle design of the Mi 12 will be better and will not obstruct the display content like the Mi 11 series. Also, there are reports that the rear camera design of the Xiaomi Mi 12 will adopt a new scheme. The lens module now has a partition design which is more beautiful than the Xiaomi Mi 11 series.
In the camera department, this upcoming digital series from Xiaomi will use a 50MP main camera. This is contrary to earlier reports that this smartphone will come with a 200MP Samsung main camera. However, there are reports that this 50MP main camera will adopt an ultra-large bottom solution, supporting 1920fps super slow motion. This smartphone will also come with a 50MP high-quality ultra-wide-angle lens. The periscope telephoto is also a 50MP high-quality lens. This means that the Xiaomi Mi 12 series will use a 50MP triple rear camera setup.
Xiaomi Mi 12 speculations
Under the hood, this smartphone will use Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 898 SoC. Furthermore, this device will come with an LTPO adaptive refresh rate screen. This feature will realize an adaptive refresh rate adjustment function between 1 – 120Hz. This feature will also bring an automatic adjustment of the display. This means that when a user activates a high-demanding game, the refresh rate of the display automatically sets to 120Hz. However, when the user is on a social app, it reduces the refresh rate significantly. This will ultimately help in the power consumption of the device.
The original plan for the Mi 12 shows that it will support 120W wired fast charging and 100W wireless charging. However, due to the implementation of the new wireless charging regulations, wireless fast charging above 50W will be prohibited. Considering the embargo on wireless charging above 50W, Xiaomi Mi 12 may focus on wired fast charging to make up for the wireless restrictions.
